Alcohol Markers

As you’ve seen in other posts, this is my art side coming out. Veterinary Dentistry is the arts and crafts of veterinary medicine.

This post is part of a series started many months ago in regards to card creations we are using in the office (and showcasing my creative outlet).

In the class, “Magical Marker Techniques,” Altenew’s Artist Markers and Copic/alcohol markers were used.

Many of these techniques appear like freehand so they are not my style. I decided to use a stencil to layer the markers. Instead of cutting my own with a negative die cut, I used Altenew’s rose stencil and Altenew’s artist markers.

A colorless blender was used to finish the card and smooth the layers. Altenew’s markers have great tips but they do not blend as well as traditional copic markers, yet they are still great for coloring images.

The image was finished with shimmer spray and the text from the cherished memories stamp set.

Blended marker coloring as shown in this image is more of my style to do with alcohol markers:

If you are the recipient of this card from my office, I hope it brightens your day!
